Okay, wow, I am soo sorry to all of you!! It has been WAY too long since I updated you all on stuff!! I have been keeping pretty busy. Here's what I have been up to:
  • finishing an online class--went great! got an A in the class (it was a really easy class, in my opinion)
  • started teaching Sunday School for the 3's--absolutely LOVE it!! :) I love getting to know all the kids and spending time with them and teaching them.
  • helped plan, organize, and execute the preschool VBS--it was a great week! we had anywhere from 20-21 2-4 year olds with 5 adults and 2 youth workers. we did everything from play outside to playing with playdough to crafts to finger painting with pudding (which was a favorite :) )
  • been working anywhere from 38-42 hours every week...getting really nice paychecks!! :)
Okay, so it doesn't seem like that much when I write it out like that...BUT it has been keeping me busy! Weatherwise, last week was incredibly hot and humid (90s) and we had a couple of thunderstorms. One storm...which was mainly wind...took out one of the trees in our back yard. :( It was one of the ones we had planted when we moved in about 19 years ago. We used to call it the "big bird" tree because it had this one branch that would grow out of the very top and it made the tree look kind of like Big Bird from Sesame Street. My mom, brother, and I did a count of how many trees we have ever had in our yard...we came up with 16. Currently we have 8 left standing. So sad!!

So, at the final program for VBS last week, they made scotcharoos for dessert. They were very yummy, and of course, there were some left over. Now, having the connections that we do...Mom being the Children's Ministries Director and all...we got some leftovers. Of course, there were not nearly enough ;), so I decided to make some today. I made a single batch, which equaled out to be a 9x13" pan. I had one when they were done. Then I went to work at 3. I got home about 30 mins ago and my family was asleep. Now, mind you, I don't know the full story, but what would you think?? I went to go have another one and HALF the pan is GONE!!!! Keep in mind, it was only my mom, dad, and brother at home!! Now, they could have put some in the freezer, which would be great, but somehow I doubt they made it that far... ;) Sigh, guess I will have to make some more. Shucks, right?? :)

Anyways, guess that is it for now. I have the next 2 days off of work...yay!! I'm ready to relax a bit!
